Lazio coach Delio Rossi was delighted with yesterday's 2-1 victory over Panathinaikos.

The Rome club are building towards their Champions League qualifier against Dinamo Zagreb and had Goran Pandev to thank with his brace being enough to see off Panathinaikos.

"It is still summer friendly football, but in six days we are playing for a whole lot," said Rossi.

"We are in good spirits ahead of that appointment. There are things we have to improve on, but the squad is already in good shape."
